Looking At Fallout 76 and Battlefield V Disappointing Sales

Looking At Fallout 76 and Battlefield V’s Disappointing Sales

While I am not trying to sound like a know it all here, I knew that the tail end of 2018 was going to see some games struggle to find an audience. There were far too many huge releases in a short period of time for them all to do amazingly well.

We all knew that Battlefield V was not meeting its sales targets as it had its price slashed in half roughly a week after release. Fallout 76 also is suffering a similar fate, although a large portion of that can be attributed to the fact that not many people actually asked for Fallout 76 and it was a bit of a mess when it was released.

Battlefield V managed to sell around 1.9 million copies. Let’s face it that is no small number and many smaller studios would kill for those kind of sales. EA though are less than happy as this is around 60 percent less (in terms of physical sales) of what Battlefield 1 sold during the same time frame when it was first released. A 60 percent drop is no small number so EA must be taking this very seriously.

Fallout 76 is fairing even worse. It has reportedly sold around 1.4 million units (this number from what I can tell is for its digital sales) this is down a massive 80 percent from what Fallout 4 sold! To be fair, many Fallout fans were not interested in what Fallout 76 was offering before it was even released. It got worse though as the game for some people was near unplayable thanks to all of the glitches it has.

While I cannot comment on Fallout 76 as I have not played it. I still think that Battlefield V is a fun game and one that is worth playing, especially now as you can get it for a very cheap price. You have to wonder how these sales are going to affect both franchises moving forward.
